Today on Aging Insight we talk about some of the issues that come up with grandchildren staying with grandparents. We discuss the legal issues that you may run into if your grandchild or child is in need of medical treatment. It’s common with grandchildren to get into accidents while at a grandparents house that needs a few stitches or some medical treatment. If the parents are off on vacation or they’re even out of the country, there can be an issue. Hospitals have their rules and regulations about who can consent to treatment for a minor child.
